Default Old Fuel

I was cleaning out an old storage room, and found about half a gallon of fuel. It is probably about two years old, so I dont really want to use it anymore.

How should I dispose of it?

Dump it in the sugarwater you use at the track on raceday.

I live in the South, we race all year long, and race every weekend, so during the week I "store" my fuel under the kitchen table, ready to head out the door... I don't want my fuel going through large temperature changes.

I'm thinking about store it in the bedroom. But, then it might be too hot for it. Maybe I'll keep it in the house, instead of in the garage as I always do.

Is it really flammable? Darn it, I don't want my kids to get naer'em.

Do what i do. put it in a bottle and put a rag in the top. Let the fuel soak through and then light the top and throw it through the neighbours window!!

Ok that what i would do if I could get away with it, the old witch!
